F-M High School named 2020-2021 Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction

Fayetteville-Manlius High School was again named a New York State Public High School Athletic Association Scholar-Athlete School of Distinction.

Schools can apply for School of Distinction status by having 100% of its varsity teams qualify for and receive the Scholar-Athlete team award during their respective sports seasons. Winners will be presented a certificate and a commemorative award at their local athletic director workshops this fall. 

“This program highlights and celebrates schools that value the importance of academics, as well as athletics. It is always exciting to see how many of our member schools take advantage of this opportunity and show the value of education,” said Robert Zayas, executive director of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. 

The purpose of the School of Distinction Awards is to unite varsity coaches in challenging their teams to achieve a statewide academic honor. This year, 64 schools earned the 2020-21 School of Distinction Award.
